Didn't Fix The Problem

This was my first ever visit to a urologist. I went in got a shot and a very uncomfortable procedure. They did not bother to tell me what they were going to do. I felt traumatized. 6 months later after a month on antibiotics, an ultrasound, urine test etc. I ended up in the ER in severe pain with another UTI. I have had 19 UTIs in a 2 year period and have been pumped with antibiotics non stop during these past 2 years. All this in my records given by my family physician who made the referral.

Two Stars

I would not use this dr. again. He didn't ask any questions just said we will set up surgery tomorrow. I am on blood thinner and if he had read my records he would have known that. I had to tell him I was on it then he said we have to wait then. He is not good at review CT scan either.

Horrible DR

Horrible doctor. My husband just went to him. This jerk DR spent 5 minutes with him and asked NO questions and left the room. After an hour and a half wait!!!! My husband could have Cancer and we wouldn't know. I will discourage ALL from seeing this guy who should not have a medical license!

why does it take so long between diagnosis to treatment

a week from diagnosis of bladder infection to actually prescribing an antibiotic takes a week. good luck if you can get a bladder analgesic in the meantime. does anybody care that a patient is in pain for a week and probably the bladder is scarring while they are doing what? does coastal Alabama has a urologist and staff that really cares? to rate a practice you aren't asking the right questions. its nice to be prompt and available if you actually followthru as promptly. if I knew a urologist within driving distance who would see that I get the treatment I need without delay, I would change drs in a new your minute.

Exceptional Doctor

One of the few exceptional doctors I've had the pleasure of meeting. His dedication to patient care is truly remarkable. Many doctors often times, rush through appointments without treating the patient as a person; let alone a person in pain or suffering. Dr. Turnbull has restored my faith in doctors, it was as if he took my disease personal as if I was his son. He is a remarkable doctor who has always seemed to give his all when treating me. I recommend him to all suffering with urinary or kidney problems. This is one doctor who has actually helped me
